Labor pains

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 23, 2007, 4:20 PM
I have to find a new job.

Job hunting stinks. I like doing the work, I just hate selling myself and knocking on employers doors, showing them my private arts. It is as hard as a cat trying to bury a turd on a marble floor. I've been  beefing up my portfolio with more concepts and environments. So bring on the feedback ...any comments to help me improve are welcomed (and if you have any info on jobs in the l.a. area *wink*wink*).

On a different note I just read a great book called Geek Love about a family of circus geeks and freaks. It's by Katherine Dunn. The story is narrated by a dwarf hunchback albino women named Oly. That alone should sell ya on it :love:
